Coffee Break: LuMee iPhone Case

LuMee phone case sale I remember reading a few years ago that the reason Kim Kardashian always looks so great in her selfies is because she has a special iPhone case that provides a soft, happy light. Well, ladies, as holiday season approaches, I think it’s fair to say we’ve all got some selfies ahead of us — as well as group photos and more. So clearly we’re doing the world a service if we get one of these cases for our own phones, right? The fact that Amazon has some for $28-$70 (the rose gold pictured is $36… and kind of in my cart) is hard to pass up. Nordstrom, Target, Neiman Marcus, and a slew of other stores have more options for LuMee cases, including for the Samsung Galaxy. (Note that there are apparently two models: the LuMee Two only has front-lighting for selfies, while the LuMee Duo has front and back lighting. Not confusing at allllll.)

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Stretch-Tweed Pants

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

slim stretch-tweed pantsBloomingdale’s is apparently continuing their Cyber Monday discounts to today, offering 25% off sitewide. Happily, this includes a lot of Bloomingdale’s exclusives like these cute stretch-tweed pants from Theory. These are a great way to start getting patterns into your wardrobe — if you’re new to mixing patterns, try wearing them with a thick waffle-knit sweater in black as a way to bring a little bit of pattern mixing into your repertoire — if you’re an intermediate try pairing a black and white printed blouse (floral, animal print, whatever) beneath a plain black sweater. If you’re expert level, go bolder — just keep the colors in the same family (black and white) and you’ll look polished and put together.  The pants were $345, but come down to $258 at checkout. Slim Stretch-Tweed Pants

Here’s one similar plus-size option, and these $50 pants (super similar) come in regular, petite and plus sizes.

Coffee Break: Shoes & Bags in the Nordstrom Cyber Monday Sale

With the “extra savings” that apply to many items in Nordstrom’s big sale, there are a ton of great deals today on shoes for work. In particular, heels, boots, flats and more are steeply discounted. Some favorites, after the jump… prices as marked are today’s prices; they may go back up tomorrow if/when Nordstrom ends the extra 20% discount. Note that if you’re buying a lot, you may want to declare today your “personal 10 points day”(!). (Also, check out our workwear picks from the Nordstrom Thanksgiving Sale, which are also an extra 20% off today as well!)

Coffee Break: Jade Tassel Y-Necklace

With winter comes turtlenecks and thick sweater knits that may feel a bit off with some of the delicate jewelry that’s popular right now… and not quite right for the statement necklaces that were omnipresent several years ago. I still like a long pendant necklace for a lot of these looks. We’ve featured this very popular tassel necklace before, and while it’s still a good bet, something about this pictured silver necklace seems just right to me. It’s $98, available in silver and gold. Jade Tassel Y-Necklace

The Best Winter Vacation Strategies

After most of us just enjoyed a four-day weekend (or turned it into an even longer break — lucky you), it’s time to go back to work and … talk about winter vacation strategies! In the wintertime, do you prefer to escape the cold and snow by going somewhere warm with beautiful beaches, or are you into winter sports and like to travel somewhere with wintry weather for skiing, etc.? Maybe you live somewhere that doesn’t even get a real winter and so you seek that out — snow crunching under your feet, a crackling fireplace, a cup of hot chocolate, and so on? (To that, I say … no thank you! OK, except for the hot chocolate.) Another aspect of winter vacation strategies: savings! According to a recent NYT article, the cheapest days to depart are 12/26 or 12/29 — and I have at least one friend who uses those savings to go on major, multi-week vacations around now. (Here’s another article on strategies for saving money on winter vacations from Forbes.)
